When people look back on the Cowboys' 2012 season, there are only two things they will be concerned with: wins and losses. Yesterday's game falls into the latter column, but only because the Pokes violently shoved it out of the former. See also: Ravens Cornerback Tells Dez Bryant to "Be a Man," ... More >>
In the wake of his infuriating, game-losing Texas two-stub Sunday night in New York, Cowboys' quarterback Tony Romo is in the middle of a familiar tug-o'-war. In this corner: Supporters who claim he's an elite player who simply, spectacularly goofed up trying to aggressively make ... More >>
Day 132 of the NFL lockout is going to be the last. When the NFL Players Association's 11-man executive committee formally agrees to accept the owners' labor proposal this morning -- around 10 a.m. -- it will effectively end a boring, maddening off-season. As the league's approximate 1,900 ... More >>
Tyron Smith: The next Dallas Cowboy?The Cowboys need help at safety. Their 2010 pass defense was the worst in the 50-year history of the storied franchise and two culprits were Gerald Sensabaugh and Alan Ball. Problem: The Cowboys won't take a safety with the 9th pick in tonight's NFL Draf ... More >>
While in the midst of a lockout, the NFL owners and players these days can't even agree on what they disagree on. What to do for a football junkie? I know, let's have a March Madness-style tournament, the winner of which gets as his prize: The cover of the Madden 2012 video game. Wait, what? ... More >>
On the other side, for those who haven't read it, is the class action complaint filed on Friday by the National Football League players (among those named: Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Payton Manning and homegrown Aggie Von Miller, who's yet to be drafted) presently locked out by the team owners in the ...

You've waited for this moment all your life. Practiced. Rehearsed. Trained. Sacrificed. Compromised. Even went to college class, some of the time. But now, on the eve of a major company extending you a lucrative dream job, veteran workers at the company are suddenly urging you not to ac ... More >>
Garrett Top. Unless of course, Jason Garrett pulls a Cliff Lee and spurns the metroplex. Make no mistake, the Dallas Cowboys' interim head coach is suddenly a hot commodity as other NFL teams' permanent head coach. In the wake of a 5-3 second half he has some real leverage now. How's th ... More >>
Miles Austin caught six balls for 115 yards and a TD, but his slip-up turned into a defensive TD, and his post-game antics were embarrassing. If there ever was an easy win to be had this year for the Dallas Cowboys, last night's Christmas match-up with the Arizona Cardinals was it. Universi ... More >>
Jason Witten will never say it, so I'll do it for him: Gimme the damn ball! Especially in the red zone!! I generally support Dallas Cowboys' offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, but this is getting ridiculous. When the red-head calls plays in the red zone it makes Cowboys' fans red-fac ... More >>
The next Pro Football Hall of Famer chosen with the 51st overall pick in the NFL Draft will be the first. Meaning? That the Dallas Cowboys have quantity in this weekend's draft, but not quality. Thanks to Roy Williams, the Cowboys don't own a first-round pick but have 11 selections overall including ... More >>
According to the Pro Bowl, Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner are the two best NFL quarterbacks of 2008. According to me, nonsense. Warner has the best receivers in the league and throws in the worst division in football. Manning was steady, but hardly spectacular. My rankings, which take into acco ... More >>
Please, for the love of God, rescue us! You catch any of Steelers over Redskins last night? Weird. Could’ve sworn I saw Pittsburgh lose its starting quarterback to an injury, only to insert a backup who actually helped them win the game. I know. Crazy. By my count six backup quarterbac ... More >>
Hey, at least he's better than Brooks Bollinger. Or is he? Now that you’re with me on Brad Johnson -- you are with me, right? – would you rather see Brooks Bollinger try to guide the Cowboys to a win, or at least a touchdown, Sunday in New York while trying to climb out of my rankings’ cel ...

Toldja. Pacman is in rehab. Wade Phillips isn’t in limbo. The Cowboys are in trouble. Most importantly, Tony Romo’s pinkie is still in a cast. I’ve already sliced and diced Brad Johnson and the loss to the Rams. Let’s make this short and sweet: Romo plays Sunday or else Dallas h ... More >>
This week's Top 5 clash: Romo v. Warner. Two observations from last weekend: Neither Sage Rosenfelds, nor Drew Brees, will ever climb to No. 1 in these rankings. Rosenfelds, because he’s skittish enough to produce three turnovers on his team’s final 10 snaps in a gut-wrenching, come-from ... More >>
His arrow is suddenly pointing down. Don’t look now, but just guess who has the best passer rating in the NFL? Not Brady nor Manning nor Romo nor … Would you believe this guy? Believe it. Six touchdowns will do that for you. As for the rest of the NFL’s quarterbacks, Green Bay’s ... More >>
McDonalds serves up a rodent, then scurries for cover
Cowboys tiptoeing line between super and stupor
Who's the second-best QB in the NFL. Guess. And it's not Drew Bledsoe, whoever he is. Two names I just know you didn't expect to see atop the charts: Borat and Romo. But, alas, here they sit. The reporter from Kazakhstan is still the No. 1 movie in the U.S. and A., and the quarterback from Eastern ... More >>
Our fear of the unknown appears unfounded. So far.
Bill Parcells may be an asshole, but he's a complicated, self-torturing and very likely depressed asshole. Which has to count for something. Countless times--well, just three, actually--Richie Whitt's called Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells an "asshole" on Unfair Park. Got no problem with that. Fro ... More >>
